It is about time we dispel the myth that abortion is about women’s health and about choice. This most recent, high quality documentary on the abortion industry does this job very well. That is why you must see this movie and share it with everyone you know. My wife and I traveled the 2-1/2 hours it took to get to Albany, NY, the only place where it was being shown. I watched the trailer and I had to see for myself if this movie was worth promoting. Let me tell you about it.

Writer and producer, David Kyle, in this film hosted by Alveda King (niece of Martin Luther King, Jr. and a woman who regrets her abortions), uses a reason and fact based approach to this topic. The viewer of this documentary will realize that the pro-life argument is not about forcing certain religious beliefs onto others. For instance, the undisputed science of when human life begins is made clear. When clinic workers have to assemble the pieces after an abortion to ensure the doctor removed everything, you know a fetus is not just a blob of tissue. One of the memorable lines of an interviewee is, “We’re all blobs of tissue. I’m a 250 pound blob of tissue.”

Most Americans have heard of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case which legalized abortion in all 50 states. The film also discusses how the lesser known Doe v. Bolton case made abortions legal through all 9 months of pregnancy. How did Doe v. Bolton do that? Watch this film in which both “Roe” and “Doe” are interviewed and find out exactly what “to protect the health of the mother” means.

Other facts that can no longer be ignored are the physical and emotional toll abortion takes. Most women are silent about their abortion for decades, but they suffer in many ways. The documentary points out that you can’t buy a pack of cigarettes or be given a prescription without a warning label that describes the risks. With any other surgery, the doctor will discuss the potential risks involved. Yet, while abortion could lead to future miscarriages, infertility, cancer, and even death, that information is kept from the patient. While it is well known that abortion can cause post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and thoughts of suicide (in fact, women who have an abortion are 6 times more likely to commit suicide), this information is not shared with the patient. So the question is “WHY?”

Now we begin to understand the reason for the title of this film. Women are not given all of the facts because the people involved in the abortion industry are out for money. It is stated that this is not about the health of the woman; rather it is exploitation of women. It is not about choice (how can it be when women are not given all of the facts?), it is about despair – the feeling that they have no choice. This film will open your eyes to the truth behind the “pro-choice” agenda. And perhaps it will open the eyes of just one other friend.
